Senior Glo Ups: Freshman Year to Now

April 8, 2019

The four years at AHN seem to fly by and physical changes often go unnoticed, until old pictures are compared. Through the years girls glo up both physically and mentally. After looking at old pictures, girls often cringe at their fashion sense, or their physical appearance, and are able to appreciate the ways they have matured during their time at AHN. Below are some of the best glo ups from the class of 2019.

Senior Brianna Benito says, “I think that my skin and teeth have really changed since freshman year, since I took medicine for my face and got my braces off. When I look at old pictures of myself and I get embarrassed, but then I think they’re sweet since I was so young looking and look so much different from today.”

“When I look at myself from freshman year to now I feel like I have matured a lot into my face. Some of the things I notice most are how I used to have brace and how much darker my hair used to be.”
